If you are a UCSF Health employment candidate, please request your background check right away to ensure that you can begin employment on time.  Occupational Health cannot schedule your new hire exam until you do. 

Once your exam is scheduled, we will send you our new hire form to complete to the extent possible.  Please fax or bring the form to your visit.  The scheduler can provide you the fax number, depending on the office where you are scheduled.

If you are a new UCSF Campus hire,  you, your HR rep or your supervisor can put in a request for you to be seen.  This link is available through UCSF computers or VPN only.
